Hi! I'm Lori and "Sclero Scoop" is a peek into my life with Scleroderma and various other autoimmune diseases.

I was diagnosed with Scleroderma in 2002 and have been riding the roller-coaster ever since.

This is my chronicle of life with this chronic disease. I'm not going to sugar coat what I go through. It's a reality that can be scary and hard to read about. Early on, when I researched Scleroderma, what I read terrified me and often times left me feeling hopeless.
Sclero Scoop is my way to hopefully alleviate that for others. It's my way to "give back" - hopefully helping to make life easier for other patients. To let them know they are not alone and that someone else knows what they're feeling. I hope my experiences, my tips, my "advice", can help others to live productive, fulfilling lives, like I try to do.

While I'd love to not have Scleroderma, and every day has it's struggles, and some days just plain suck ... I like to think my life is GREAT, WONDERFUL, AND AWESOME, in spite of life with a chronic illness.

Please always remember that EVERY patient and their disease is different. Everyone responds to medicines and treatments differently. These are just MY experiences. Your experiences may be completely different.
